Analysis of justifications of modal claims and its application in evaluation of thought experiments
The purpose of many thought experiments is to defend or to put doubt on some modal claim. The aim is to devise a topology of modal claims, their justifications as well as selected relevant relations among these. This analysis will be furthermore applied in considerations about the (conditions of) correctness of different types of thought experiments known from particular specialized literature.
Debates around Moral Responsibility belong among the most widespread and relevant in philosophy. The aim is to present novel arguments within the dichotomies in existing debates about moral responsibility and/or to present arguments for new ways of focusing on relevant problems. The use of analytic methods should lead to a model of arguments within a formal system.
